Te Linde's
Operative Gynecology
Tenth edition
by John A. Rock

The world's leading gynecologic surgery reference for 60 years, Te Linde's Operative Gynecology is now in its revised Tenth Edition. In this new edition, Te Linde's leads the field with a Best Surgical Practices section in each chapter that synthesizes the best way for surgical procedures.

This classic text is rooted in the Johns Hopkins tradition of gynecologic surgery, but now includes 75 contributors, for a broader, more complete presentation of national and international practices. The book provides encyclopedic coverage of the etiology, diagnosis, and step-by-step surgical treatment of benign and malignant diseases and disorders of the female pelvis. More than 1,600 illustrations demonstrate the surgical techniques.

The Tenth Edition has brand-new illustrations in the chapters on diagnostic and operative laparoscopy, control of pelvic hemorrhage, surgical conditions of the vulva, laparoscopic hysterectomy, ectopic pregnancy, paravaginal defect repair, posterior compartment defect repairs, intestinal tract in gynecologic surgery, and operative hysteroscopy. A new two-color design highlights important figures and tables. Each chapter of this edition includes definitions and revised self-testing questions.

A bound-in DVD provides videos and accompanying text on para-aortic node dissection, avascular spaces of the pelvis, pelvic node dissection, hypogastric artery ligation, and presacral neurectomy.
